A large grey female Cossid with a wing span of about 175 mm. It made a crash landing and thrashed & skidded about on its back rubbing-off most of its scales on the thorax and wings. It finally calmed down when offered a large piece of eucalyptus bark. There were no significant patterns on wings or thorax on the grey upper side. The undersides of the wings were a deep pinkish-brown with a pale edging to the inner margin of the fore wings. The abdomen was thick and densely covered with brown tinged setae dorsally and was white on the ventral side.
Attracted to bright lights on building near a National Park.
A slender green katydid with a white stripe running along the midline and lateral aspect of the thorax. Each fore wing shows strong white stripes with a red lower margin, one running along the middle and the other, along the outer edge of the wing. Long antennae were a pale yellow.
Spotted under bright lights - warm night.
